Nip, Tuck, Dead: A Pauline Sokol Mystery (Mass Market Paperback)
Ex-nurse-turned-insurance fraud investigator Pauline Sokol's willing to risk anything to put a bad doc out of business--even her best friend Goldie's near-perfect proboscis Her cross-dressing compadre has agreed to get his shnozz bobbed so Pauline can pose as his private nurse and gain entry into Highcliff Manor--a posh plastic surgery "spa" making an illegal killing with their repeat clientele.
But when a super-rich "frequent flier" is unexpectedly widowed--and a receptionist who knows too much is given the boot . . . off a nearby cliff --Pauline realizes she's stuck her own nose into something really nasty. Despite the pleasant distraction of the hunky Dr. Neal--and the unexpected appearance of her sexy cohort, Jagger--Pauline can't shake the feeling she's being closely watched. And if she's not careful, she'll be the next one who goes under the knife.
